OUIGO Madrid Valencia recent customer reviews

Fast train , no stop. Straight to my destination from Madrid- Chamartin to Valencia. Should be better with Kiosk or Bar. Or at least with service trolley for light meal or breakfast. As I took the the 07:15 train. Got up so early without breakfast or coffee.

Sheila R.18 October 2023

Una cosa es que en Madrid, cuando llegamos a la estación de chapmartin, teníamos muy poca información sobre cómo llegar desde la estación de metro. La mayoría del personal no entendía inglés. Todo estaría bien, si la gerencia relevante diera más información sobre las direcciones, a dónde debe moverse a continuación. Gracias por leer
